Bringing The Farm To Live In Another World - Chapter 1209
Chapter 1209 – Weapon Shattering
Zhao Hai secluded himself inside his room for three days. Xiong Li and the others also didn’t disturb him. Conversely, they were defending the door to Zhao Hai’s room, they wouldn’t permit anyone to disturb Zhao Hai.
Naturally, their actions attracted Ma Rulong’s attention. Ma Rulong was the leader of their delegation and was very concerned about every partic.i.p.ant. Moreover, Zhao Hai was a person he has been keeping tabs on.
So after seeing Zhao Hai secluding himself in his room for three days without going out, Ma Rulong couldn’t help but worry. He went to Zhao Hai’s room and then saw Xiong Li and the others sitting outside. They were whispering to each other and failed to notice him.
Ma Rulong stepped towards the group. Once Xiong Li and the others noticed Ma Rulong, they hastily stood up and bowed as they greeted, “We’ve seen Senior Ma.”
Ma Rulong nodded, then he looked at Zhao Hai’s room and said, “What’s wrong with Zhao Hai? Why hasn’t he come out? Is there a problem?”
Xiong Li shook his head and said, “Senior Ma doesn’t need to worry. Little Hai is fine. There’s just something he needed to do so he secluded himself. I believe he will come out in a day or two, there’s no problem.”
Ma Rulong looked at Xiong Li and said, “Is he really alright? You can tell me if something happens.”
Xiong Li nodded and said, “Senior Ma can rest a.s.sured. If something happens, we will certainly inform you. There’s no need to worry.”
Ma Rulong nodded, then he looked at Xiong Li and the others and said, “Alright. Try to stay in this place in the next few days. There are people who went out and got forced to accept a challenge issued by the Cultivators. They have a lot of methods to make you accept. Some even came back injured. So if you do go out, be extra careful, especially Zhao Hai. There are a lot of Cultivators who see him as a threat.”
Xiong Li and the others nodded, “We will. Senior Ma can rest a.s.sured. We’ll pay attention.” Ma Rulong nodded, then he left.
Just as Ma Rulong left, Xiong Li turned to the others and said, “It seems like those Cultivators really aren’t leaving us alone. Right, do you think we can go out when Little Hai is done?”
“Go out? Of course we’ll go!” Just as Xiong Li said his words, Zhao Hai’s voice was suddenly heard. Xiong Li and the others turned around and saw Zhao Hai smiling as he walked out of his room.
Seeing that Zhao Hai was out, Xiong Li and the others immediately surrounded him. All of them were looking at Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Come in.” Then he went back inside his room with Xiong Li and the others following behind.
Upon entering the room, Zhao Hai closed the door before he waved his hand taking out a two-handed axe. The axe didn’t look any different than the one Li Kuangren used. It was completely identical to his previous weapon.
Zhao Hai handed the axe to Li Kuangren and then said, “Third Brother, try it. I managed to refine the axe. Although I didn’t add any materials to it, I managed to modify the formations inside.”
Li Kuangren nodded and took his axe. He tossed his axe in his hands before he nodded and said, “Good, it’s as heavy as before.” Then he began to input battle qi.
Just as battle qi entered the axe, it immediately shone. Li Kuangred stared before quickly withdrawing his qi, the radiance also vanished as he did that.
Li Kuangren began to funnel in battle qi once more and saw the axe light up. Li Kuangren’s eyes shone as he said, “Nice, this is very good. Fantastic. The amount of battle qi I need is less than before, and it seems like the effect is the same. Little Hai, am I right?”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he smiled and said, “Correct. What you feel is right. Your axe now needs only 70% of what you use before in order to achieve the same effect. So what do you think?”
Li Kuangren laughed and said, “Fantastic, fantastic! This will be very good for me. Thank you Little Hai.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Not only that, I also added a magical effect to your axe. Once it clashes with an opponent’s weapon, it would vibrate and shatter the enemy’s weapon.”
Li Kuangren stared, everyone’s expressions changed as well. Then at the same time they asked, “Shatter the enemy’s weapon?”
Zhao Hai nodded as he smiled and said, “Right, it can shatter the enemy’s weapon. This feature used to only be found in mech weapons. This is due to the large amount of energy required to do it. Since mechs have energy batteries, this allowed them to have this feature. Battle qi is also a type of energy, so why can’t Warriors use this ability? Therefore, I researched magic formations and ended up with the one I put inside Third Brother’s weapon. Third Brother, try it.” Li Kuangren nodded, then he looked around the room, probably finding something to test this ability on.
Seeing Li Kuangren, Xiong Li said, “Third Brother, the things in this room can easily be cut off even if you don’t use battle qi. How about you try this.” After he said that, Xiong Li took out a weapon from his storage equipment.
In his hand was a heavy sword. It can be seen that it has been excellently worked on. Xiong Li smiled and said, “This is from a level 4 Warrior I killed before. To be honest, this weapon isn’t any worse than my hammers. Try attacking this one.”
Xiong Li gripped the sword hilt and then lifted it up. Li Kuangren nodded before funneling battle qi into his axe and then attacking the sword.
Xiong Li quickly detected his weapon shaking. He immediately poured in battle qi when the crash happened.
A bang was heard before the axe cut through the sword as though it was a piece of paper. A clang was then heard as the top half of the blade fell to the ground.
Everyone in the room looked at the sword in Xiong Li’s hand. Whatever Xiong Li was holding now could no longer be described as a sword. The only remaining part was ten centimeters of blade besides the hilt. As for the other half that hit the ground, it was less than ten centimeters long. Only this much remained, the other materials of the sword was vaporized.
Not wrong, vaporized. It wasn’t broken to pieces or smashed to bits. It was vaporized, turned into very fine metallic powder.
Upon seeing this result, Xiong Li and the others couldn’t help but breath in cold air. Li Kuangren stared at his axe, it seems like he saw a monster.
Hiss! The sucking of air was audibly heard as Xiong Li and the others finally recovered. Xiong Li held the sword up and looked at the fractured part. The portion of the blade looked like it has been dissolved, leaving a very neat cut into the sword. If he hadn’t tried this sword before, then he would have thought that he had taken out the wrong weapon.
“Hahaha”, Li Kuangren was beyond happy with his axe. His laughter lasted for some time, causing Xiong Li and Dongfang Yu to be envious.
After some time, Li Kuangren finally calmed down before storing his axe. Meanwhile Xiong Li and Dongfang Yu turned their heads towards Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai saw their expressions, he smiled faintly and said ,”I can also transform Boss Xiong’s Weapon. As for Second Brother Dongfang, I don’t think the fire dragon sword needs to be modified right now. Let’s wait until the secret of the sword becomes clear.”
Xiong Li nodded and said, “Alright, give it the weapon shattering ability as well. It’s very good.”
Dongfang Yu was somewhat depressed. However, after thinking that even Zhao Hai couldn’t read the fire dragon sword, he couldn’t help but feel hope.
It must be said that Sun Fei was the most depressed. He was a Mage so he couldn’t use any Warrior weapon. Zhao Hai looked at Sun Fei’s expression as he smiled and said, “Alright, Little Fei, there’s no need to be sad. I’ll organize a few formation sets for you in a couple of days. I believe they will be helpful to you.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Sun Fei repeatedly nodded and said, “Alright, then it’s settled. Brother Hai, you need to hurry up.”
Zhao Hai laughed and said, “I know. Right, how about we go out to play now?”
As soon as they heard Zhao Hai, Xiong Li and the others paused. Xiong Li frowned and said, “Little Hai, do you really want to head out? You should know that there are a lot of Cultivators waiting for us outside. They’re especially attentive towards you. If you leave now, they will certainly bring you trouble.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Of course I know. However, we need to teach those fellows a lesson. Do they really think that the Machine Field is full of herbivores? Rest a.s.sured, if they dared to look for trouble, I’ll happily accommodate them.” Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Xiong Li and the others knew that persuading him otherwise was useless. Therefore, they just agreed to it before heading out of the courtyard.
As soon as they were out, Zhao Hai quickly felt someone following behind him. However, he wasn’t worried. He knew that the person behind him has been arranged by Ma Rulong. Therefore, he just ignored it and the group of brothers continued to walk down the street.
Ever since they came to Seamount City, they haven’t had the proper opportunity to explore the place. But even if they hadn’t come out, Zhao Hai was already familiar with the city’s streets.
The moment Zhao Hai and the others entered Seamount City, Laura and the others had already begun mapping the entire place. At this time, the entire city has already been mapped by the s.p.a.ce. In the last three days, besides practicing, Zhao Hai also took the time to familiarize himself with the city. Because of this, he knew every street in the city.
Xiong Li and the others were completely clueless about the place, so they just followed Zhao Hai as they proceeded to window-shop. Zhao Hai wasn’t just randomly wandering around, his main target was Seamount City’s market.
Seamount City’s market area was actually their business district. In this business district, not only were there shop fronts, there were also people who put up stalls. These people were Cultivators, but they were mostly rogue individuals. As for the shop fronts, they were mostly under the control of major powers.
It’s a custom in the Cultivation World that only Cultivators could enter a major city. No person who hasn’t cultivated was allowed to enter a major city.
Not everyone in the Cultivation Realm cultivated. At the current moment, people who haven’t cultivated still account for the majority of the population. However, the lives of pract.i.tioners weren’t as good as those back in the Machine Field.
The Machine Field’s science and technology was very advanced. The average person in the Machine Field had a home to stay in and entertainment to kill time with. As long as they were willing to work, then even if they didn’t practice, they would still live quite well.
Things were different in the Cultivation Realm. Almost all of the non-pract.i.tioners in the Machine Field were controlled by a major sect. These people couldn’t farm whatever they wanted. If a family has ten mu of land, then they would have to use 5 mu for plants that the sect needs and the other five for food. Naturally, the sect wouldn’t rob them of their harvests. There would be monetary rewards, moreover these rewards were often big.
However, if they didn’t look after their land, then they would be punished by the sect. Moreover, this punishment was heavy. Besides this, all non-pract.i.tioners would pray to the Sect, providing the Sect with faith power. If a sect discovers that a non-pract.i.tioner hasn’t been praying enough, the non-pract.i.tioner would be punished. Unlike non-pract.i.tioners in the Machine Field, non-pract.i.tioners in the Cultivators were like pigs in a pen. The had lives only a tad bit better than slaves.
Non-pract.i.tioners in the Machine Field only think of cultivation as a way of life. If one can practice then they would be congratulated. Not only the person, but their family would also benefit. Their living environment would be greatly improved and many others. But in the Cultivation Realm, not everyone can practice. In order to become a Cultivator, one needed to have a spiritual root.
Spiritual roots were like Mage talents or innate skills for Warriors. If you don’t have talent for magic, then you won’t be able to become a Mage. If you don’t have any innate skills, then you couldn’t learn strong martial techniques and reach a high level. Spirit roots were the same. If one didn’t have a spiritual root, then they wouldn’t be able to cultivate.
However, not everyone who can practice could enter sects. Take a small sect like the Seamount Faction, for example, their selection for disciples was very strict. If their talent for cultivation wasn’t good, and they didn’t have much potential, then it would be impossible for them to enter the sect. There were low-level cultivation methods that were circulated for free. But it can be said that these methods weren’t enough. People who practice these methods were called Rogue Cultivators.
Rogue Cultivators who managed to enter a sect were limited to a few lucky fellows. If a Rogue Cultivator wanted to join a sect, then they needed to successfully arrive at Qi Condensation stage. And by then, only small sects would accept them. But in order to cultivate, one would need pills and better cultivation methods. These things can only be bought in the city. And in order to buy these things, they would need crystal stones. To gain crystal stones, Rogue Cultivators would hunt and kill beasts, collect medicinal plants, mine for precious rocks, and so on. They would then go to markets to trade their stuff for crystal stones. In turn, these crystal stones would allow them to buy the cultivation materials they need.
Chapter 1210 – Country b.u.mpkins?
There’s a saying in the Cultivation Realm, it goes.. “There are always treasures everywhere, but everything depends on your eyes being in the right place!” The sentence might sound ridiculous, but it was somewhat true.
n.o.body in the Cultivation Realm would dare underestimate these stalls. This was because treasures were often seen on them! This treasure might not be a weapon or a magic artifact, it may be a plant or a piece of ore.
After all, these Rogue Cultivators weren’t as informed as sect disciples. Although they were also Cultivators, their knowledge about various treasures couldn’t compare to sect disciples. Because of this, there would be times where they get a treasure but were unable to identify it. In the end, they would just sell these items in their stalls.
This caused the stalls of the Rogue Cultivators to be a special sight in the Cultivation Realm. People in the Cultivation Realm would have no objection to Rogue Cultivators pitching up some stall on their own. On the contrary, they strongly supported them. The more stalls there were, the more treasures would appear in a certain city. For the people in the Cultivation Realm, treasures were one of the most important things in Cultivation.
Zhao Hai’s trip to the marketplace was mainly in order to pick up a treasure for himself. At the same time, he would also hunt for valuable plants and ores.
It has been some time since the s.p.a.ce got some new plants. Because of this, Zhao Hai plans to send a batch of new plants to the s.p.a.ce.
The group of brothers chatted as they proceeded forward. Xiong Li and the others were excitedly looking at the scenery. The clothing of the Machine Field and the Cultivation Realm was different, making Xiong Li and the others extremely eye-catching. Everyone they pa.s.s by looked at them with expressions that was anything but friendly.
Sun Fei looked at the Cultivators in the surroundings before whispering to Zhao Hai, “Brother Hai, these guys don’t look very friendly. What do we do?”
Zhao Hai just smiled and said, “Don’t worry. If they dared to make a challenge, I’ll clean them up.”
Sun Fei looked at Zhao Hai’s confidence and didn’t say anything. He was well aware that Zhao Hai was strong and that the two of them weren’t on the same level. Zhao Hai managed to block three swords from Li Chuchen. Because of this, Sun Fei didn’t see any problems from what Zhao Hai said.
The group walked for about half an hour before they could finally see a bustling marketplace in the distance. Moreover, the sound of bargaining was already audible.
Upon seeing this scene, everyone couldn’t help but look at Zhao Hai. They weren’t familiar with Seamount City, so they just followed Zhao Hai as he led them to take a few turns. Xiong Li unwittingly asked, “Little Hai, what’s that?” Zhao Hai already became the center of the group. Although he was ranked fourth according to seniority, he was the strongest among them all. In this world that spoke with strength, the strongest would naturally be the center.
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “The marketplace. This is where people from the Cultivation Realm buys their items. Let’s go, maybe we can see something good.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Xiong Li and the others couldn’t help but smile bitterly. Dongfang Yu looked depressingly at Zhao Hai and said, “There’s certainly things that are good here. However, this isn’t the Machine Field. They don’t accept machine coins. And we don’t any crystal stones.”
Zhao Hai just smiled and said, “Don’t worry about it. If you fancy something, I’ll buy them for you. I have enough crystal stones for all of us.” The s.p.a.ce was able to make crystal stones. With the amount already mined inside the s.p.a.ce, Zhao Hai could be considered as a wealthy man in the Cultivation Realm.
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Xiong Li and the others couldn’t help but gawk. Xiong Li confusedly looked at Zhao Hai as he asked, “Where did you get crystal stones? Those things are strategic resources in the Machine FIeld. Don’t tell me the Ashley Family gave some to you? Are they that rich?”
Zhao Hai just smiled and said, “There’s no need to worry about where I got them. In any case, it’s good that we have crystal stones. It’s time to let the Cultivation Realm know that we’re filthy rich.”
Zhao Hai looked very much like a rich young master right now, causing Xiong Li and the others to laugh. However, their actions caused the surrounding Cultivators to get angry.
People from the Cultivation Realm looked down on the people from the Machine Field. In their opinion, those from the Machine Field held lower status than them, even inferior compared to non-pract.i.tioners who were living like pigs in a pen. They felt disgusted to see these people from the Machine Field in their city laughing and being wild.
Actually, talking out loud wasn’t a problem. There were no rules disallowing loud chatter in the streets, after all, this was a normal occurrence. However, if those being loud were from the Machine Field, the Cultivators seem to find fault in it.
Zhao Hai didn’t care about them as he led his group towards the market. Upon entering the area, Xiong Li and the others gawked. There were stalls everywhere, much more than what they expected.
Shop fronts in this place seem to disappear due to the sheer volume of stalls being set up in the streets.
Zhao Hai didn’t care about the spectacle as he just proceeded to go forward. Xiong Li and the others immediately went and followed behind. However, their arrival became the focus of attention in the market. Everyone looked at them while whispering. Naturally, these people knew who Zhao Hai and the others were.
Zhao Hai didn’t mind this kind of attention. As long as someone was wearing Mage robes in the Cultivation Realm, this situation would always happen. This was because there were very few people from the Machine Field here.
There were quite a few cultivators who would go to the Machine Field in order to look for something. On the other hand, not a lot of people from the Machine Field could go to the Cultivation Realm. First, it was because the transmission formation couldn’t be used at will. Only s.p.a.ceships could permit their travel, and even then it was very difficult to get into one. Secondly, people from the Machine Field would get discriminated once they go to the Cultivation Realm. Therefore, only an extreme few from the Machine Field would go to the Cultivation Realm. It can be said that the Cultivators wouldn’t see someone from the Machine Field for years. But now, there was a group of people from the Machine Field. It was no wonder why the Cultivators were somewhat curious.
Zhao Hai didn’t mind it as his eyes proceeded to sweep the stalls. But disappointingly, there were nothing special in the stalls. Majority of those displayed were beast skins or beast bones. These things were completely useless for Zhao Hai. What Zhao Hai needed was a live beast, not parts of a dead one.
Then suddenly, Zhao Hai discovered a stall in the corner. And unexpectedly, the stall was manned by a small child. The child looked more than ten years old and was quite mature for his age. There were some items in his stall that looked very simple. But on a rag on the ground lay a plant. This plant was in a small tile pot. However, the plant’s trunk looked dry, it also had a few leaves left. It can be said that the plant was half-dead.
Zhao Hai proceeded to walk to the stall and examined the potted plant. Although the plant looked half-dead, Zhao Hai could sense a strong life force coming from it. Because of this, Zhao Hai decided to buy the plant.
Zhao Hai looked at the child and said, “What plant is this? How many crystal stones for it?”
The child stared at Zhao Hai, but after he heard his question, the child immediately answered, “I don’t know what plant it is. I dug it from the foot of a mountain. If you want it, I can sell it for ten crystal stones.”
To be honest, 10 crystal stones wasn’t cheap, especially for a half-dead plant. And even if Zhao Hai can feel the life force inside this plant, other people couldn’t. Zhao Hai had the s.p.a.ce that had an affinity for plants. This also explained why this child has been here for days not being able to sell the plant.
But without hesitation, Zhao Hai took out ten crystal stones and handed it over to the child. Then he carefully inspected the plant. This plant was a small tree about a meter high. It still had a few scattered leaves remaining. It’s trunk was very dry, looking much like the face of an old person. It wasn’t attractive at all.
However, this feature made the plant special. Generally, plants of this size wouldn’t have a lot of cracks on their trunks. But this specific plant seem to have weathered through life for countless years. It was truly strange.
A short while after Zhao Hai began inspecting the plant, an arrogant voice was suddenly heard, “I want this tree, how many stones?” Zhao Hai turned around to see a young man dressed in Cultivator clothes. The young man had an extremely arrogant look on his face.
The Cultivator robes he wore was very well made. His hair was in a ponytail while a fan was held in one of his hands. The young man looked like a son of a wealthy family.
The child looked at the young master as he awkwardly said, “I’m sorry, this tree has been sold to this gentleman. He has already given me his payment.”
The Cultivator turned his head to Zhao Hai when he heard the child. He coldly snorted and then said with disdain, “Machine Field b.u.mpkin, state your price. I want that tree.”
Zhao Hai looked at the young cultivator as he smiled faintly and then sent the plant to the s.p.a.ce. Then he calmly replied, “I’m sorry, it’s not for sale.”
When the young man saw Zhao Hai putting the plant away, his eyes couldn’t help but shrink. This slight reaction couldn’t be hidden from Zhao Hai. This caused Zhao Hai to confirm that the plant was certainly special. Otherwise, this young man wouldn’t have been so adamant to buy it.
Upon hearing that Zhao Hai was not willing to sell, the young man’s expression changed. Then he gave out a strange smile as he asked once more, “You’re really not selling it?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I’m not selling.”
The young man suddenly laughed and said, “Machine Field b.u.mpkin, you actually dared to come to the Cultivation Realm to steal our treasures. I don’t know if you’re dumb or you just want to die. You better surrender that tree to me today, or else, hehe. I will let you know that the Cultivation Realm isn’t for people like you.”
Chapter 1211 – Ghost Dao Cultivator
As soon as Xiong Li and the others heard the young man, they quickly knew that it was impossible for this interaction to turn friendly. Zhao Hai looked at the young man as he smiled and said, “What? You can’t buy it from me, now you plan to s.n.a.t.c.h it? You think you can do that?”
The young man laughed and said, “You’re asking me if I can do it? You really think I can’t take it away from you? Do you Machine Field b.u.mpkins really think that you’re on equal grounds with Cultivators? Give me the plant now and I’ll keep your corpse intact.”
Goodness, they would still kill the person, but they would keep their corpse intact. This was probably the craziest statement that one could make.
Zhao Hai looked at the Cultivator as he smiled and said, “Mister, please tell me who you are. Maybe I can look at your background and decide to let you go. Otherwise, you can’t blame be for being impolite.”
The young man looked at Zhao Hai as though he was an idiot. He suddenly laughed and then coldly looked at Zhao Hai as he said, “You’re dead country b.u.mpkin. I’ll tear you to shreds.” Zhao Hai just smiled and then said, “Then please.” Then he flew towards outside the city along with Xiong Li and the others. The Cultivator saw this and also followed behind.
Seamount City wasn’t a big city and the Seamount Faction that was in charge of this city wasn’t a big influence. It can be said that if it weren’t for the support of the big sects in the Cultivation Realm, then they wouldn’t have dared to provoke the delegates from the Machine Field.
Zhao Hai and the others quickly flew to a barren hill just outside the city. The group stood on the sky atop the hill. The Cultivator looked at Zhao Hai and then sneered, “You’re quite good in choosing a place to be buried in.” Zhao Hai looked at the Cultivator, then he coldly smiled and said, “Rest a.s.sured, after you die, I will turn you into a good and obedient Undead. Being able to fight for me is an honor.”
The Cultivator coldly snorted and said, “Courting death!” He waved his hand as the fan flew out and then spew out black gas. As the ga.s.ses got out of the fan, they quickly formed into malicious ghosts that threw themselves towards Zhao Hai.
The Cultivator looked at Zhao Hai and said, “I’ll make you taste the might of my Ten Thousand Ghosts Fan. I will make you understand the difference between the Cultivation Realm and the Machine Field. Then I will refine you to become a living soul for my fan.”
Zhao Hai coldly smiled as he waved his hand and then released a 50-layer formation. This formation immediately exploded and became several hundred white arrows. Zhao Hai waved his hand once more, causing the arrows to fly towards the malicious ghosts.
The Cultivator smirked, he didn’t take Zhao Hai’s magic seriously. In his opinion, magic cannot compare to his skill. Because of this, he had the malicious ghosts continue flying towards Zhao Hai.
However, what happened next surprised the young man. Once Zhao Hai’s white arrows. .h.i.t the ghosts, the ghosts suffered an extremely heavy injury. The ghosts wailed pitifully as their bodies continue to shrink. They became more and more transparent as their yin energy was cut short.
Any Cultivator that knew about malicious ghosts would quickly know what was happening. This was a sign that the malicious ghosts were heavily injured and was quickly losing their strength.
First level malicious ghosts were called Ghost Servants. Their attacking strength was small and they were quite weak. If one wanted to use first level malicious ghosts to deal with an enemy, then they would have to depend on numbers to do so. Without thousands of first level malicious ghosts at your command, then one wouldn’t be able to properly fight.
Second level malicious ghosts were slightly stronger, but not substantially. No ghosts were very useful alone before the fifth level.
There were a lot of methods to upgrade malicious ghosts. Besides making them absorb yin energy, malicious ghosts could also devour other malicious ghosts to get stronger. This way, one would be able to train higher-leveled ghosts. However, this method would cause the user to lose a lot of their ghosts.
One method for malicious ghosts to level up quickly was providing them with blood meal!
Blood meal, as the name suggests, was food composed of flesh and blood. This was a very special method that works very well in improving the power of malicious ghosts. However, those who use this method weren’t good people. Users of these methods tend to be the worst individuals.
There are two types of blood meals. The first type was blood meals made from beasts while the other type was blood meals made from people. These two types were very different. Blood meals made from beasts could also increase the strength of a malicious ghosts, but it also reduces their wisdom. In other words, malicious ghosts fed with the flesh and blood of beasts would get stronger quickly but in turn they would become stupid. They would become wild beasts and act according to their instincts. They would only be able to understand simple orders.
On the other hand, malicious ghosts fed with blood meals made from people would not only get stronger fast, they would also become smarter. This was especially true if a ghost was fed with blood meals made with a cultivator’s flesh and blood.
Feeding ghosts with blood meals made from monster beasts was the most common practice in the Cultivation Realm. There were a lot of places in the Cultivation Realms were beasts were kept just for this purpose. This was also very normal practice for Ghost Dao cultivators.
However, there were some Evil Cultivators that would use the other method to make their malicious ghosts stronger. They would feed their malicious ghosts with living people. There was a rumor that the Devil Realm had pens with living people in it. These pens would breed people for the consumption of the ghosts.
The Cultivator that Zhao Hai was fighting right now used the second method to rear his malicious ghosts. Therefore, he had spent quite a lot of effort in his ghosts. If the people from the Cultivation Realm were to find out about his practice, then he would no doubt be executed.
Because of this, upon seeing that his precious ghosts were being heavily injured, the Cultivator was quite distressed. If the level of these ghosts fell, then how long would it take for them to regain their strength?
With this thought in mind, the Cultivator quickly put away his fan as his face turned ugly. Then he looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Good, good. You actually dared to hurt my ghosts, I’ll turn you into blood meal!”
Zhao Hai looked at the Cultivator, then he shook his head and said, “Why do Cultivators talk too much? It’s incredible. Before you fight, do you invite your enemies for a gla.s.s of wine, then have a tea party before you quarrel for an hour and then fight? If that’s the case, then I really admire you people.” Xiong Li and the others laughed.
Hearing that he was being ridiculed by Zhao Hai, the Cultivator’s face turned dark. Then he coldly snorted and said, “You have a sharp tongue. Now, go die!” He waved his hand, taking a sword out. He pinched his hand as he performed a sword art to attack Zhao Hai.
The sword was made very strangely. The sword body was like a snake and its handle was its tail. It’s whole body was black, it looked terribly gloomy.
Zhao Hai discovered that this Cultivator’s strength was much less compared to Li Chuchen. Although the sword looked aggressive, it actually failed to seal up all of Zhao Hai’s escape routes. If Zhao Hai didn’t want to face this attack, then he could just easily avoid it.
Zhao Hai waved his hand as a 50-layer formation appeared in front of him. Then the formation opened up as a giant light sword appeared. This light sword proceeded to welcome the Cultivator’s sword.
The Cultivator coldly snorted, then he activated his secret art. The sword elongated and was also wrapped with a layer of dark mist. The sword looked ethereal as thought it became the dark mist itself. It’s form was now akin to a ghost.
Zhao Hai didn’t care about the young man’s sword changing into yin energy. Zhao Hai was using light element magic, an element that specifically targeted yin energy. In this clash, Zhao Hai had the upper hand. Therefore, he held no fear.
As the light sword and the yin sword clashed, a bang was heard as an explosion occurred. The Cultivator’s expression changed. When the dust settled, Zhao Hai’s light sword vanished. Although the Cultivator’s sword was still there, the dark mist surrounding it was gone. It had returned to its previous form.
The Cultivator had an ugly face as he retrieved his snake sword. The sword was a medium grade artifact. These things were quite rare in the Cultivation Realm. Being able to clash with a light element sword was not a problem. However, the piece of soul that he attached to the soul has been heavily damaged. At this point, it was already impossible for him to control the sword as smoothly as before.
The Cultivator didn’t expect Zhao Hai to be this formidable. Even after the snake sword appeared, the other party was still alright. This was very surprising.
The Cultivator quickly moved as a banner appeared in his hand. As he swung the banner, the skies quickly turned dark as dark mist surrounded Zhao Hai.
Then he waved his hand, causing five black flags to appear. Another wave of his hand made four of the flags shoot out in all directions. The young man then waved the remaining flag in his hand. The flag became larger and then the dark mist proceeded to attack Zhao Hai and the others.
Zhao Hai coldly snorted. Then he waved his hand causing a 100-layer light element formation to appear. Then with him at the center, a blast of light erupted outwards.
This light element formation composed 100-layers, not 50. As the white light exploded outwards, the dark mist cast by the Cultivator quickly vanished. The Cultivator let out a miserable grunt, his expression turned very ugly.
Zhao Hai knew that the other party’s soul has been damaged, so how could he let go of this opportunity. He quickly sent over a wind-a.s.sisted ice blade. Then he sent his ten thousand flying arrows, then another barrage of metal arrows, then a stealthy darkness arrow.
Zhao Hai’s barrage of attacks caused the Cultivator to be caught off-guard. The Cultivator practiced the ghost dao, so when the dark mist dissipated, he quickly took out a ghostface shield to defend. The defensive capability of this shield was quite high. It blocked three of Zhao Hai’s spells. However, it failed to see Zhao Hai’s darkness arrow. The arrow broke through the defense and then shot towards the Cultivator’s throat!
Chapter 1212- Primal Universe Spirit Root
As the Cultivator died from the arrow through his throat, his face had an expression of utter disbelief. His face turned dark before he finally blacked out.
Before the Cultivator’s body fell to the ground, Zhao Hai quickly let out a clump of black gas that wrapped the Cultivator’s body. Then when the black gas vanished, the Cultivator was nowhere in sight. He had already become an Undead in Zhao Hai’s army.
Seeing that Zhao Hai had killed the Cultivator, Xiong Li and the others cheered. But at this moment, a person was suddenly seen flying in the distance. This person wasn’t far away, and he was also flying at full speed.
Seeing this situation, Xiong Li and the others began to turn anxious. They quickly put up their guard, afraid that the person was an enemy.
However, Zhao Hai didn’t seem to be nervous. He said, “There’s no need to be afraid. It’s a team leader.” Just as his voice was heard, a person wearing Mage Robes appeared in front of them.
This person didn’t waste any time as he said, “Quickly follow me. You just killed a core disciple of the Seamount Faction. He’s one of the partic.i.p.ants in the Six Realm Beginner Compet.i.tion. When the Seamount Faction knew about this situation, they quickly sent over reinforcements.” It was clear that this team leader took a route that was different than the Seamount Faction’s.
As soon as they heard this, Zhao Hai and the others stared for a moment before nodding and then following behind the team leader.
A short while after Zhao Hai and the others left, a group of people arrived at the scene of battle. The leader of the group was the head of the Seamount Faction. He glanced around and said, “I can sense the breath of the kid here. Him and another person fought here. It seems like his murderous scheme has been overturned.”
Then an Elder at his side said, “This is impossible. The last time I saw the kid, he was with those b.u.mpkins from the Machine Field. They killed that kid? How is that possible?”
The head sighed and said, “It looks like we underestimated the strength of the Machine Field. Machine Field’s Zhao Hai can block Li Chuche’s three swords, so he’s quite strong. Compared to Li Chuchen, our candidate is still far off. Four years of our effort has been wasted.”
The Elder coldly snorted and said, “Sect Leader, we should immediately look for the Machine Field’s people and have them hand over Zhao Hai. If they don’t, we can just clean them up.”
The Sect Leader shook his head and said, “It’s useless. The Machine Field would never hand someone over. They didn’t even take us seriously during the last fight. They don’t fear the Seamount Faction, they were just on guard against the huge sects behind us. Now that the people from the other sects had left, the Machine Field’s people will certainly deal with us if we go there. You think those great sects would support the Seamount Faction if the Machine Field attacks? That’s impossible. Those great sects are ruthless. They wouldn’t care about a small sect like ours.”
The Elder was silent. He knew that the Sect Leader was telling the truth. In the eyes of those huge sects, the Seamount Faction was just a small sect controlling a small city. They were simply ants in their eyes. Even if these sects look at the Seamount Faction, it was only times where they would issue orders. And even then, those sects might not remember their names.
The leader sighed and said, “People from the Machine Field can be complete lunatics. Don’t think that the Machine Field are pushovers since they could be easily overwhelmed by the sects. You should take into account how much effort it needs to deal with them. If the Machine Field was truly provoked, then their a.s.sa.s.sins would be a headache to deal with. Compared to the Machine Field, the Seamount Faction is still lacking. Also, we don’t want to take part in these troubled waters. Let’s give up on the Six Realm Beginner Compet.i.tion this time. At worst, we will have no benefits for five years. If we provoked the Machine Field, then we wouldn’t even survive for five years.” The elders sighed and said, “The Machine Field will now be attaching more importance to Zhao Hai. If we dealt with him, then the Machine Field would certainly go all out against us.”
The leader nodded, then he said, “Let’s head back. We’re just unlucky this time. Now I want to see how far this Zhao Hai can go in the compet.i.tion.”
At this time, Zhao Hai and the others had already returned to their courtyard. Just as they arrived, Ma Rulong immediately found them. Upon seeing Zhao Hai and the others return, Ma Rulong couldn’t help but let out a sigh of relief. Then his expression returned to its cold state as he nodded towards Zhao Hai and said, “Let’s talk inside.” Then he turned and walked towards Zhao Hai’s room.
Zhao Hai and the others immediately followed behind. As soon as they entered the room, Ma Rulong suddenly laughed. This caused Zhao Hai and the others to feel awkward. After some time, Ma Rulong calmed down and then he patted Zhao Hai’s shoulder and said, “Zhao Hai, good job, good job. You’re really giving the Machine Field face. You actually killed a core member of the Seamount Faction. He’s one of the top 100 of the realm qualifiers, Gongsun Zheng. Hahaha. Good, this is great!”
Zhao Hai and the others were stunned. They remembered that they knew nothing about their opponent. But it seems like Ma Rulong was aware.
Ma Rulong looked at Zhao Hai and the others. Then he smiled and said, “When you went out, I had some people follow you. You’re now the treasure of the Machine Field, so I can’t have anything happen to you. When Gongsun Zheng began to provoke you, the team leader responsible for guarding you was going to make an attack, but he didn’t do it in the end. I really didn’t expect you to be strong enough to kill him. We’ve been collecting information about the other top 100 partic.i.p.ants from the other realms. Once it’s completed, we can let you take a look. But in the meantime, you should go and take a break.”
Zhao Hai only knew that Ma Rulong was sending someone to follow him. However, he didn’t know that Ma Rulong was also collecting information. It seems like there were still a lot of secrets that the Machine Field held here in the Cultivation Realm.
Once Ma Rulong left, Zhao Hai chuckled and said, “I didn’t expect the person I killed is someone from the Seamount Faction. Hahaha. Interesting.”
Xiong Li and the others looked at Zhao Hai as though he was a monster. After a while, Xiong Li sighed and said, “It seems like Zhao Hai will definitely get a high rank in the Six Realm Beginner Compet.i.tion. He actually killed a top 100 partic.i.p.ant from the Cultivation Realm.” Dongfang Yu and the others nodded. If they weren’t clear about Zhao Hai’s strength before, this time they really understood Zhao Hai’s strength.
The top 100 of the Cultivation World always held the dominant positions in the Six Realm Beginner Compet.i.tion. One day they might just be the top 100 of the Cultivation Realm’s qualifiers, but once the Six Realm Beginner Compet.i.tion ends, it’s very possible that the same 100 would take the top 100 spots.
And now, Zhao Hai managed to kill one of the top 100 beginners in the Cultivation Realm. What does this mean? In other words, Zhao Hai has the strength to become top 100 in the Six Realm Beginner Compet.i.tion!
Upon thinking about this, Xiong Li and the others couldn’t help but be happy for Zhao Hai as well as the Machine Field. The Machine Field has been suppressed by the Cultivation Realm for a long time. Now, Zhao Hai was here to vent some of the Machine Field’s anger. Xiong Li couldn’t help but feel excited.
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “My goal this time isn’t as simple as being in the top 100. I’m here to challenge the authority of the Cultivation Realm. I want to let the Cultivators know that the Machine Field can be as strong as any of them.”
Xiong Li and the others simultaneously shouted ‘good’. Then Li Kuangren laughed and said, “Today is worth celebrating. Little Hai, do you still have some wine? I’ll be sad if I can’t drink today.” Zhao Hai and the others laughed. Then a few jars of wine appeared in the room. Xiong Li and the others’ eyes widened. Then they picked up the jars and headed out. Zhao Hai followed behind them as they sat in the stone chairs outside. Then he took out some side dishes from the s.p.a.ce. The group proceeded to drink merrily much to the envy of everyone else in the courtyard.
After becoming drunk, Zhao Hai and the others returned to their own room. Zhao Hai immediately went to the s.p.a.ce and drank some spatial water. Then he took out the small tree that he just obtained earlier.
Just as Zhao Hai took out the small tree, the s.p.a.ce immediately issued a prompt, “Primal Universe Spirit Root detected. The s.p.a.ce has leveled up to 180. The concentration of spiritual qi inside the s.p.a.ce has been increased by 100%. Plants in the s.p.a.ce has been increased by ten levels. Time accelerated area has increased tenfold. The time accelerated has been upgraded by 100 times. Host now has the ability to purchase high-level cultivation backgrounds, high-level technology backgrounds, and high-level magic backgrounds. s.p.a.ce has evolved into a small universe. All backgrounds purchased by the host has now been turned into individual planets. The speed of spirit vein generation in the s.p.a.ce has been increased by tenfold. All ores inside the s.p.a.ce can now be transformed into veins with the ability to grow autonomously. Level of the Universal Processing Machine becomes advanced. Level of the Universal Scanner becomes advanced. Host’s abilities have been increased by ten times. Magic beasts in the s.p.a.ce increased by ten levels, they are now officially Demonic Beasts!”
Everyone turned silent, not only Zhao Hai, but Laura and the others as well. The s.p.a.ce just crazily leveled up. It rose my several levels. Moreover, everything inside the s.p.a.ce has been upgraded. All of these was far from what Zhao Hai expected.
The s.p.a.ce levelled up by several tens of times. In the past, Zhao Hai didn’t experience this even at the early stages of the s.p.a.ce. At that time, although it was very easy for the s.p.a.ce to level up, it wasn’t as crazy as this time. Moreover, it seems like the s.p.a.ce has become a small universe. In other words, the s.p.a.ce has become a miniature version of the World of Cultivation. All backgrounds have also become planets. This was good news for Zhao Hai.
The backgrounds turning into planets might look like a loss to Zhao Hai because this meant that the backgrounds now had limited area. Backgrounds from before seemed endless with no end in sight. One could see from this point that Zhao Hai had suffered a loss.
However, one shouldn’t forget that the s.p.a.ce has something special, and that was the Hundred Spirits Tree. The Hundred Spirit Tree would produce a planetoid every hundred years. Moreover, this planet can float in the universe. If the s.p.a.ce doesn’t become a small universe, then where would this planetoid be placed in? In the small planet? Then that would provide some issues.
But now, this issue has been solved. Moreover, the plants and the animals of the s.p.a.ce has leveled up. This was an abundance of strength increase for Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai also believed that the Undead could now go beyond their limit.
There was also the Universal Processing Machine, the Universal Scanner, the increase in Spiritual Qi density, mineral veins, spirit veins, and more. All of these changes was very advantageous for the future development of the s.p.a.ce.
Zhao Hai finally let go of his worries. Then he turned his head to the small and dried up tree. Who would have thought that this small tree was a spirit root left behind by the universe when it was formed. If the Cultivators knew about this, they would certainly go crazy.
The Cultivators being unable to recognize the plant surprised Zhao Hai. However, he couldn’t blame them for not taking note of it. First, this thing appeared quite suddenly. Second, it was a divine object, and such treasures were difficult to look for and was only found by luck. Moreover, such treasures would hide itself so that no average person could see it.
This spirit root can be said to be a pinnacle treasure in the Cultivation Realm. However, this precious item actually appeared in a stall in the small Seamount City. Apart from people in the Seamount City, n.o.body would give attention to such a stall. Moreover, the Seamount Sect wouldn’t look around in the marketplace every day. There was also the arrival of the Machine Field’s delegates, causing the Seamount Faction to shift their attention. This wasn’t the time to care about something in some stall somewhere.
Gongsun Zheng just felt that the small tree wasn’t simple, he didn’t know what it was. Additionally, it was Zhao Hai who bought the spirit root. He wanted to teach Zhao Hai a lesson by forcing him to hand over the root. Gongsun Zheng had no idea about its true value.
After Zhao Hai thought of this, he turned his head to Cai’er and said, “Cai’er, give the spirit root a place to settle in. Make sure to take care of it.” Cai’er complied and immediately went to the spirit root. After thinking for some time, Cai’er decided to plant the spirit root at an area not far from the Hundred Spirits Tree. This was a good place to monitor it and it offered an advantage for Zhao Hai.
But just as Cai’er placed the spirit root on the ground, the spirit root suddenly wriggled itself out fiercely. When it fell to the ground, the root burrowed down fast. Cai’er stared and then immediately tracked the root using her spiritual force. It didn’t take long before she discovered the spirit root uniting with the roots of the Hundred Spirits Tree. Soon enough, the two looked indistinguishable from each other.
It wasn’t only Cai’er who was shocked, Zhao Hai was shocked as well. He didn’t know what was happening. Then at this time, the s.p.a.ce has issued a prompt!
